Reality Tea

Texicanas Recap: Unfashionable Behavior

On last night’s episode of  Texicanas, the saga continued between Luz Ortiz and Mayra Farret. I swear it doesn’t matter how old the women are catfights will always exist. To think this drama is all over the word, “anal”. Maybe I am in the minority, but I don’t think it’s that big of a deal. SMH…But in the spirit of reality tv, take a small argument and drag it out for a season. These women definitely have taken a page out of The Real Housewives handbook!

Several of the women attended a mariachi mass with their families. Karla Ramirez barely crawled down the aisle to find a seat after completing the grueling Spartan race, the day before. I bet she will train beforehand if she ever agrees to do another one. The ladies attend lunch after mass with their families. Although Luz is not there, she and Mayra’s relationship (or lack thereof) becomes a topic of discussion. Mayra seems to be struggling with how they can coexist in one friend group. This will be a problem when the ladies are eventually put in a position to choose a side. If I were Mayra, I wouldn’t allow Luz to alienate me among women I have known longer than her.

Kyle Richards & Camille Grammer

Tonight the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills travel to Hawaii to celebrate Camille Grammer‘s marriage. For an episode about Camille’s wedding, Kyle Richards is sure getting a lot of attention. Unfortunately.

Lisa Rinna and Dorit Kemsley are dateless and have only each other to worry about. Which is probably a welcome reprieve! Meanwhile, Kyle is stuck babysitting Mauricio Umansky. Since she doesn’t have any of her daughters to hover over Kyle probably loves this. And basking in the sun and the booze certainly brings out the Maurice in Mauricio!

Shahs of Sunset Season Finale recap

Well, something that rhymes with spit has hit the fan. This has been a busy time for new mom and Shahs of Sunset star, Mercedes “MJ” Javid. Recently giving birth to son, Shams, MJ had both a difficult pregnancy and delivery. After spending time in the ICU due to complications, MJ and husband, Tommy Feight, should be basking in the glow of finally becoming parents to a child they fought to conceive. MJ has stated she is already thinking about baby number two, and consistently thanks her husband for his support.

But things have apparently taken a dark turn for the couple. Despite a close relationship with co-star, Reza Farahan, he did not visit MJ while she was hospitalized. Reza was not alone, however, as none of the Shahs cast reached out during her difficult time. MJ has gone through multiple spats with her friends in the past, usually coming to a resolution by the time filming is over and moving forward. Now, something has happened between MJ and Reza. Could this put their relationship in jeopardy for good?

Below Deck Mediterranean’s Hannah Ferrier Dishes On The Oddest Guest Preference Sheet Request

One of the great things about watching Below Deck Mediterranean is that for 60 minutes (OK-40 minutes on DVR!) is that you can imagine yourself as a guest on a luxury yacht. All without having to mortgage your home for a two day vacation. In three seasons of the show, we have watched charter guests–from the lovable to the loathsome–have their every whim catered to. And who wouldn’t love that?

No request is too big–or too small for the crew to fulfill. From water slides used for five minutes by bored millionaires to the crew-dreaded beach picnic setups, every wish of the guests is indulged. Surly Chief Stewardess Hannah Ferrier frequently grumbles about demanding guests, but usually does what she can to grant their requests. Only because she knows Captain Sandy Yawn is always watching! Recently, Hannah shared the oddest preference sheet request she has ever received from a guest–and it might surprise you in its simple strangeness.

Teen Mom 2 Episode Recap: Reunion Part 1

On last night’s episode of Teen Mom 2, we witnessed the first part of the reunion hosted by  Dr. Drew Pinsky and Nessa Diab. These two didn’t waste any time, they jumped right into the drama in the first five minutes of the show. This was the first time many of the cast members saw each other since the drama last reunion.Grab a cocktail or a snack and let’s mind their business for a little while longer!

The show opened up with Leah Messer and Chelsea Houska who are the only two moms who weren’t involved in the drama last year. The rest of the moms refused to be on stage with one another this year. MTV was messy re-showing the video footage of Kailyn Lowry being grabbed after an explosive argument with Briana DeJesus. You would think Kailyn would have learned a lesson and stopped inciting beefs with other people. I think the only lesson she learned was to talk crap behind their back and avoid them at all costs. I guess she doesn’t want to risk having her wig snatched again.

T-Boz & Chilli From TLC Have Turned Down Spots On Real Housewives Of Atlanta

When storylines or cast members from our favorite shows become redundant and played out, we often call for new people to join the group. Such is the case for Real Housewives of Atlanta. I mean, how many times have we seen NeNe Leakes mad at someone or Kandi Burrus promoting one of her new business ventures? The same folks engaging in the same arguments year after year can wear on our nerves, or GASP, lower the ratings.

One might believe it would be easy to bring new ladies on and incorporate them into an existing reality television show. The programs are, after all, incredibly popular. But it might be more difficult than we think. With repeated drunken arguments and women attempting to see what levels of petty can be reached, some of the more “famous” candidates for shows do not want to participate. Eva Marcille transitioned from successful model to Housewife, but it has come with a personal price tag. While Atlanta is a hot bed of talent and high-level music industry people, they aren’t exactly clamoring to be a part of the overall messiness. Reputations are tainted and friendships are ended. If you already have a “name”, chances are good you have better things to do than argue for six months out of a year.

Andy Cohen Dishes On Which Vanderpump Rules Cast Member He Trusts To Babysit His Son

Bravo’s most popular executive, Andy Cohen, recently had a baby boy this year. The initial news was a surprise to everyone. Especially to the OG housewives, Kyle Richards, NeNe Leakes, Teresa Giudice, Ramona Singer, and Vicki Gunvalson who were in attendance when Andy dropped the bombshell he was having a baby in just six weeks on Watch What Happens Live. 

Kyle immediately threw an epic baby shower with almost all of the Real Housewives in attendance. Shortly after, little Benjamin Allen Cohen was born. Since then, Andy has been out and about with the baby, even flying with him on planes. It seems to me he would eventually need a babysitter. Someone from the cast of Vanderpump Rules seems like a good idea, no?

Below Deck Mediterranean Introduces New Cast Members

Ahoy!  Below Deck Mediterranean is finally back on June 3rd, and with it a great mix of cast members.  Captain Sandy Yawn is at the helm of the Sirocco.  Bravo has, of course, realized that fans love seeing her at odds with Chief Stew Hannah FerrierJoao Franco returns as Bosun this season, and Colin Macy O’Toole rounds out the returning cast.

That leaves two positions open in both the interior and the deck crew and that’s a lot of opportunity for new hookups, dysfunction, drama, and authority questioning.
